flown over. what they were doing was panning search lights basically looking on top of the buildings to make sure there are no signs of dorner. and as you were talking about earlier, this is a sweeping manhunt that's extended through southern california to the u.s.- mexico border including parts of nevada. they have checked suburban streets. they have looked at a naval base near san diego. and most recently in that snowy community about 80 miles east of l.a., they have even followed foot tracks, but so far, the suspect still is on the loose >> reporter: police say helicopters equipped with infrared and thermal imaging searched through the night for 33-year-old christopher dorner the ex-lapd officer they say is now hunting his former colleagues. >> the streets will be full of patrol cars. >> reporter: the heaviest search is taking place in big bear, california. dorner's burned-out truck was found there thursday afternoon 4:57. new details in this week's cable car accident.
5:01am
and a door-to-door search is under way. >> we'll head back down closer to where we live and keep my family safe. >> reporter: dorner posted a manifesto on his facebook page where he vowed to get revenge for being fired in 2009. >> he is armed and dangerous. >> reporter: outside lapd headquarters, officers are taking the unusual step of patrolling their own headquarters in case dorner attacks. >> he knows what he's doing. we trained him. he was also in the military. >> reporter: police say dorner began his rampage on sunday killing monica quan and her fiance. her father, former lapd captain randy quan, represented dorner at disciplinary hearings. dorner threatened quan in his facebook manifesto saying, "i never had the opportunity to have a family of my own. i'm terminating yours." police say dorner shot an lapd officer in corona early thursday morning wounding him. 20 minutes later they say he ambushed two riverside officers, seriously injuring one and killing the other.
5:02am
it's not just los angeles but the las vegas police are on high alert. dorner had recently owned a home there about nine miles from the strip. here in los angeles since his manifesto names local police officers, they have dispatched protective details to 40 potential targets including police and their families, also both the los angeles sheriff and police departments have pulled their officers from the motorcycles saying they are worried they are easy targets. so they have put all of them into patrol cars and they must patrol in pairs. >> sounds like they are taking every precaution, teresa. dorner is a former police officer. clearly he is trained in police tactics. why else is he considered so dangerous? >> reporter: it's not just police tactics. he knows the inner workings very weather. he is a naval reservist. although honorably discharged just last friday, he has these
5:03am
survival and urban warfare tactics. he has been deployed to a war zone, excels in rival marksmanship and so shook up the police department by taking the hunters and making them the hunted. >> i'm sure the police department is wondering how this is going to end. they have said themselves that they don't think it's going to end peacefully. anything in that manifesto that may indicate that? >> reporter: dorner in that manifesto is very clear-cut saying his goal is to clear his name but he doesn't believe elsur "survivor" he will survive that. he gave up on his job at lapd. that makes him dangerous. complete disregard for life. he says it many times in the 11 page manifesto that he doesn't care. he is going for his target. he wants to make his point. and he wants to clear his name but it doesn't look like it will go down peacefully. >> thank you, teresa garcia live in los angeles. this case sparked a
5:04am
statewide blue alert. a blue alert is issued when there's been a violent attack on a law enforcement officer. the alert was posted on highway signs across the state. it had information about dorner's vehicle which was found yesterday burned near big bear lake. back home a new round of rain is washing over the bay area. this is video last night in san francisco. let's check in with meteorologist lawrence karnow with the foul weather turtleneck on today. >> meteorologist and dancer extraordinaire. >> yes, a little bit of everything. this is a good day to do it. we have shower and snow in the mountains. it will be a neat afternoon to check the peeks around the bay area. you can see on our high-def doppler radar those scattered showers are beginning to sag further every further and further to the south. the air is very cold though with a system. you see some. picks up showing up on the mountaintops in the santa cruz mountains. that's mixed precipitation. maybe sleet and snow up there.
5:05am
you see snow further south of the salinas valley. things settling down for the weekend. i don't think we have to worry about rain. leftover showers early on this morning and then cold temperatures. in fact, it's chilly out there now. 34 degrees in santa rosa. 35 in the napa valley. 42 in san jose and 44 in san francisco. this afternoon, it will be breezy, cool and crisp. highs only in the low 50s coastside, 50s elsewhere. mountaintops probably only in the 40s and a little dusting of snow across the mountains, as well. that's the latest from here, guys. back to you. >> love the dusting of snow. all right, lawrence, thanks. snowy weather has returned to the sierra after a dry spell that lasted weeks. caltrans cam at interstate 80 at donner lake shows plenty of snow there as people are chaining up. while many drivers were not prepared heading over the summit, they had to buy chains and they needed some help putting them on. that meant good business for those who make a living putting
5:06am
on chains for people. one man says he is ready to help drivers who may be caught by surprise. >> maybe they don't listen to the news. they don't know what they are getting into but they do when they reach this point. >> the fresh snow is a welcome sight to skiers and borders who like to take advantage of all that fresh powder. they are happy. >> they are. skiers, got to love it. this morning a big winter storm is bringing snow to the east coast, as well. we have some live pictures as plows get ready to hit the streets in new york city. air travel is disrupted extending back to the bay area. kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran is at sfo with the latest numbers on cancellations there. cate, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, frank. that storm is expected to set things back for thousands of travelers across the country. we know its already cancelled dozens of flights here out of sfo. two strong storms are expected to converge across the
5:07am
northeast. residents have just a few hours to prep their homes for what experts say could be a historic storm. new york could get up to a foot of snow and boston up to three feet. 3,000 flights along the east coast were canceled and we are seeing the effects here in the bay area. at sfo we have learned 52 flights were canceled for today. that's 35 departing and 17 arriving from boston, news, jfk and philadelphia. the last time we checked in with airport staff, they say there were no delays as a result of those cancellations. just a few moments ago i spoke with a couple of travelers trying to get back home to italy but their flight to new york was canceled so they are going to have to find a new way home. check in with your airline before you get here to the airport. reporting live at sfo. cate caugiran, kpix 5. you can stay on top of the weather right in your neighborhood here with our interactive high-def doppler radar. that's at our website, cbssf.com/weather. we don't have snow here but we did have some rain making

5:17am
dry. the latest forecast model shows things breaking up throughout the day today so by the afternoon, we should be dry. you will see a lot of blue skies and chilly conditions. then a cold night tonight into tomorrow morning. then that's going to set the stage for a nice weekend. highs today maybe about 54 degrees in san jose, 55 in san francisco, next few days we are going to dry things out, warm the temperatures up through sunday and monday. and in fact staying dry after that right through the middle of next week. that's the latest. back to you. >> thank you. california may soon have the nation's strictest gun laws again. yesterday, some democratic lawmakers unveiled several new bills aimed at restricting possession of firearms. one would outlaw future sales of semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines, background checks for people buying ammunition, and safety training for anyone that's buying a new handgun. in the bay area, another gun buy-back program is planned in hopes of producing the number -- reducing the number of weapons on the streets. palo alto, east palo alto and menlo park police departments

5:19am
measure from the november ballot. stress on the job can lead to health risks like smoking and overeating. >> but researchers say there is no evidence it causes cancer. a study in the british medical journal looked at work related stress and found no link to the development of colorectal, lung, breast or prostate cancers. but job strain can cause chronic inflammation which may be a cancer risk. 5:20. it has to be one of the greatest feelings ever, the buzzer beater shot that earned our play of the day. >> that's coming up. will mother nature cooperate? we have the leaderboard from pebble beach coming up.
